We are passionate about Scouting at the 25th Purley. 

Scouting offers our young people the opportunity to develop to become the kind of adults that we can all be proud of. At the 25th Purley, we deliver high quality exciting weekly programmes for young people from the age of 6 to 18 and an extensive range of adventurous activities and camps throughout the year.

Scouting benefits the entire community as it gives young people something exciting, adventurous and fun to do; it encourages them to achieve and be proud of themselves; it gives them opportunities to take part in a wide range of adventurous activities that are often not available elsewhere and above all and it gives them something constructive to do with their time and in a way that benefits us all.

We encourage our young people to do their best to live their lives according to The Scout Law and The Scout Promise.

We are proud of our reputation for delivering first class Scouting with excellent equipment and resources and led by inspirational Leaders of exceptional ability and commitment.

Every child has the right to an adventure.  Life is about grabbing opportunities.  The prizes don’t always go to the biggest, the best and the strongest – they go to those who persevere.  These are simple life lessons that Scouting teaches.
